Most GMs would've been fired by year 2. The rest by year 3. Now he's extended his stay a few years by 'beginning' a rebuild. Credit will be given when credit is deserved.
I still believe that $40 mil number is pure BS but that's just my opinion. Cablevision's P&L has a couple of good places to move revenues and costs that can create an imaginary loss in one division and balloon profit in another. The good old black box of corporate financial reporting.
